The Goshen 2nd Graders went on a Walking Field Trip on Tuesday, May 14th. Students left the school after announcements and walked to the Goshen Baseball Fields while looking for evidence of spring, uses of water, and animals in their habitats. Classes then played an intense game of kickball. Students then walked to the Goshen Cemetery where they learned about cemetery etiquette. Students searched for different landmarks throughout the cemetery and enjoyed looking for the earliest birthday which turned out to be in the 1700's. Students then walked to the Goshen Church Pavilion where they enjoyed a sack lunch and bubbles. Students returned to the school exercised, enriched and exhausted. It was a great day in 2nd!
Congratulations to Goshen Elementary, in Nebo School District, and their school PR person, Courtney Adams, for earning the Nebo #Hashtag Award. This award is given to the school that communicates to their parents and students, in a variety of ways, the events and important news items happening at school. Goshen has posted over 15 stories a month. The school also has over 265 percent of their student enrollment connected on social media to get the latest news from the school.
Thank you for your support!
May 6-10 is teacher and staff appreciation! Write a kind note, draw a picture, or just say, "thanks!" to your awesome teachers and staff at Goshen Elementary! We are blessed to have such great PTA members and parents who spoil us during this week (and all year). Check out these SWEET doors. The school looks divine, come take a look!
We are excited to announce that Goshen Elementary now has a BUDDY BENCH! A buddy bench is a designated spot for a student to go if they don't have a friend to play with. Students will then go to the student on the bench and ask them to play. We have talked with our students about the importance of including everyone!
Our reading challange is getting a little crazy this year!
We have a goal to read ONE MILLION minutes this school year! We are getting so close. For a little extra incentive, the teachers and staff of Goshen Elementary are getting a little creative. The student who reads the most minutes from May 1-17 will get to CUT Mrs. Openshaw's hair! The top 3 readers in each class will get to TAPE Mr. Hunt to the wall! Other readers will be able to PIE a teacher, receive books, or other prizes! Encourage your students to read, read, read! Please make sure reading calendars come back to school for April and May.
